Did you know?

  • Wolverhampton also known as “Wolves” to the locals is also the 13th largest city in England, and the surrounding area near Wolverhampton became known as ‘the Black Country’ when, during heavy industrialisation of the area in the late 19th century, pollution covered the area in black soot and left the soil black?
  • Or that Wolverhampton was the first town in Britain to introduce automated traffic lights in 1927 in Princes Square at the junction off Lichfield Street and Princess Street?
  • Nope? Neither did I till somebody asked me, and now I’m sharing what I know with you and if you have any historical facts about the towns or the markets then get in touch as I would like to learn from you too.
